You are not alone

Well this has been a good day. It's been a nice weekend. We got to spend time with family and do some fun things. I feel like our lives are turning into some sense of normal. We are getting into a good routine anyways. I like routine, and my kids do well on routines. So it works out well for us all.

Kyle and Mason will start school tomorrow. Kyle is pretty excited, I think. He likes having a special place to go to, just like Madi does. He is very excited about his new spiderman backpack.

It's crazy to me that we're already in September, football has started, and Halloween is less than two months away. I'm not sure if I'm ready for all of us, but ready or not, right???!!!

I read something recently that has just struck me. Back in June my mom told me about this man who lost his wife just a few weeks after she had their son, who is also named Mason. My Mason and their Mason are only a few days or few weeks apart. They haven't been able to completely figure out what happened to her, I believe it had something to do with her heart. Anyways, he has been left with a baby and a daughter who is around Madi's age, I think.

Reading his blog I can relate to so much of how he feels. Oh man, how I can relate! Our situations are a little different, however, we've both been left with big responsibilities. It just really got me to thinking about how none of us are alone. And I know that, but sometimes we get reminders of that, and it's humbling. I can get so wrapped up in what I'm feeling and dealing with that I forget that there are so many others out there who need the prayers too. And of course I guess because I do know how difficult it is, I am very empathetic to those who are going through what I am also experiencing myself. So along with myself, please pray for the Carr family.

Divorcecare starts back next Sunday. I'm going to go again. I won't go every week, but I'm going to revisit some topics that would probably be good for me to go over again. I'm at such a different place now, then when I was back in February when we first started, that I think it would be good for me. This first week we have to tell our story. Ahhhh my story...I'm still thinking on that one. What is my story? I don't like this part, because it's so emotional, but it's good to get to know everyone that way. And your story changes over time. I think my story has drastically changed since February. Back then when asked what my story was, I was more like, "how the heck did I get here....and Calgon please take me away!" Well I've had some time to adjust and once again when asked what my story is, I'm not sure what I'll say. And I'm sure I'll cry. Like I've said before, you can't go through something like this and not be emotional when you have to share. It's part of being human.

Well that's all for now. I hope everyone is having a happy Labor Day!

I'm glad that you are getting settled. Let me know how the CT turns out. The pictures are great. I'm always amazed at how much they grow.
